This project has been the exact opposite. I kept running out of material, and when I substituted, I ran out of the substitute. I had to redo an arm three times, because it kept being bigger than the other one. All my sewing came out wonky and I had to unpick stitches and do them over. I lost sleep because I _JUST_WANTED_TO_FINISH dang it.
It's done now though. Yeah! It's huge. (See the other toys in the photo). Take that Cactus Boy. You're now a finished object.
Made by me from a pattern by Lydia Tresselt at LalyLala.
